Art cabin and a shadow shot

We spent the weekend with other artists at the cabin at the base of the hill leading to Timberline Lodge.

There's a glass studio in the basement of the cabin. Mark had the opportunity to take a lamp-work class (I learned how to fuse glass...pictures tomorrow)

And, of course, there was ironwork. This panel was made by Darryl Nelson of Meridian Forge. Darryl teaches blacksmithing classes every month at the art cabin. www.artscabins.org

Lumberjack detail
check out the laces!

There are also painting, jewelry and fiber arts classes taught at the cabin. Fun!

This week's shadow shot:

See the other shadow shot's at Hey Harriet's...

Wow. That sounds like a lot of fun. I've started life drawing again which has been really great! I find there is nothing more inspiring than working around or with other artists.

How cool that you and Mark had such a fun outing! What a great setting for it all too. What is the picture (shadow shot) of? I have a statue that looks so similar to her...

Karen,

She's a 1930's golf trophy. I think she's divine.

Wow, an Art Cabin. And someone like-minded to share it with -- sounds like heaven to me :-)

What a fun weekend! I'm so jealous! I learned to fuse glass a couple of years ago at the Spokane Art School, but I haven't done any fusing at all since we've lived in Oregon... *sigh*

Can't wait to see what you've made!

What a fun trip full of creative art and interesting finds! I can't wait to see your lampwork glass and that lumberjack was just fantastic.

Such a wonderful place to visit and learn. Looks like you both had a great time. Can't wait to see the pics of the glass.
The shadow shot is excellent.
Peace, Judi
